So essentially, she works at the office from 7:30-5:30, has a two hour "break" when she puts her kids into bed, and then works and works and works.Clinic day: get to work by 7:30 a.m. See patients until 5:30 p.m. – try to get billing and as many notes as possible done before the end of the day. Get home by 6 p.m., put my kids to bed by 8 p.m., then work on research projects until too tired to work more. Research day: get kids ready for school, leave home at 7:30 a.m., get to work by 8 a.m. The day is spent mostly working on writing, data analysis, slide making, etc. punctuated by meetings. Get home by 6 p.m., kids in bed by 8 p.m., work on clinical work afterwards.
Well, this is a change of pace. I'm pretty sure she said she worked all the time. Didn't she?I work about 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. every day on average. I try to sleep six to seven hours a night. I take about three full weeks of vacation a year, but try to turn off from work on the weekends as well.
Uh, why would it be any different if the doctor was an MD vs. DO? Do you really think that specialist D.O.s treat their patients differently? I do agree with you about the loan issue. SDN tends to interview too many doctors whose entire medical school tuition was paid by his/her parents - definitely not the norm.Wow, a specialist who had a father as a physician, has a physician as a husband, took out no loans ( daddy probably aid for everything), has kids and a seemingly good wlb. Privileged life. Why don't they do interviews with a few D.O. s? Or maybe a few people who actually had challenges in life. And for gods sake interview somebody who had loan debt. 90% of these interviewees had little or no loans.
